Eliminating stress and anxiety through music

Music has always accompanied human activities, from great celebrations to melancholy moments. And the opera is very present in this sense! Musical notes and their rhythms penetrate our minds and have become a kind of soundtrack to our lives.

Imagine romantic weddings. From those made in the garden (a movie thing) with the sounds of a string quartet. Now the sound of those commemorative parades where children from all schools are present on a sunny day. Do you agree that music has always played a central role in our lives?

Music and Nature

Going towards even older times, we can say that music had a marked presence in human history. Their presence in nature – like the sound of birds, leaves, and other sounds like running streams – proves that music has been present in man’s life since the dawn of civilization, has not it?

Musical genres of the most diverse as the Opera , to the most contemporary and alternative styles, music is present in our days and came to stay.

With the mixing of new types of music, we realize that music is constantly evolving and changing. Can you imagine without music? Be it Opera or even the music of fashion?

Music and stress

Music and anxiety

From ancient times music has its long list of uses for human life. Whether for reasons of expression or even entertainment and recreation, as well as observation, in the case of a spectacle or an Opera performance. There are many apparent benefits that man perceives.

Even with the variation of its use through the ages, music has also been used for propaganda campaigns, as a way to express feelings, desires or even ask for immediate action.

Even with such diversification, in addition to the mixing of human cultures, it can be affirmed, even with certain certainty by all of us, that music can be used by all as a means of “stress relief.” Undoubtedly, this is one of the great benefits of music. We know that problems related to anxiety cause the “worst” in us and us. So, what would be the best way to overcome this “worse” side of anxiety, than something that so calms as music? How to watch an opera, for example? Listening to birdsong in the morning is not relaxing?

Music as a medium

Music and its influence on human health, brings the curiosity of scholars for their beneficial results in human health. And it is important to highlight, within this range of possibilities and interests by studies that the most stands out is the use of music as medication, as an anxiety transformer.

Several studies have pointed to the power of music as a treatment for anxiety relief.

Its calming effect is incontestable and unparalleled in the human mind. Simple exposure to certain songs, such as the classic ones, such as an opera performance , are relaxing and prevent the accumulation of anxiety that is so harmful, which can lead to nausea, if not to heart palpitations, chest pains, or even difficulty in breathing and headaches often in an elevated state that may be considered chronic.

Finally, having an anxiety medication available, even if it is so alternative, is of paramount importance to the health and well-being of people. Mainly to avoid the possible complications that anxiety brings.

Listening at home is always possible

The benefits of music

We can examine the benefits of using music and the great advantages with anxiety relief. While we have so many medical prescriptions needed for some types of anxiety disorder medications, music is a product that does not need a prescription.

If you compare the convenience of having to make less travel and less spending than go buy remedies, you can simply enjoy the relief that classical music, opera and instrumental tracks (so available these days) can offer so close in comfort from your home. You do not need a lot of things to benefit from it, just turn on your cell phone and look for classic music or opera radios, for example.

On a daily basis, the use of music is also very advantageous. Especially for people who are always “running against the clock”. Professionals who normally have great difficulty in balancing their time, as entrepreneurs, can take full advantage of this.

As some studies already demonstrate, the rush of work can induce stress and anxiety as we said in the previous paragraph. And with the always tight schedules and the big agenda of appointments, how in the business world can a person stop to have a long chat with his doctor?

In fact, many professionals really do not have time to visit their doctors. Except when things no longer go very well, when the body complains about something or a major medical emergency.

Thus, the use of these musical compositions that are so relaxing turns the minds of people incredibly. From a very stressful state, full of worry and anxiety to a state of calm. Music therapy does not require medical supervision, and produces calming-like results.

Is music therapy?

Not everyone likes having to go to hospital therapy. In fact, as indicated in some surveys – and you might ask yourself too – many people choose not to participate in hospital therapy. Especially because they find it an embarrassment. Other people, even if they consult the doctor regularly, ask for anonymity because they would not want to feel ridiculed for thinking that anxiety would be a weakness.

But know, life is full of moments of anxiety and stress. And not everyone has the time and money to attend therapy sessions. It is good that we surround ourselves with music as an alternative to anxiety medications. Or would you rather go to doctors when the situation is more critical?
